The American team of women which prepared for the artistic gymnastics competition is made of 5 gorgeous and talented girls which hope to bring back home the gold in the 2012 Olympic Games held in London, United Kingdom. The main members of the team are Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, Kyla Ross and Jordyn Wieber. The replacement athletes who will also travel to England with them are Sarah Finnegan, Anna Li and Elizabeth Price. The girls are ready, their equipment is prepared, so the Olympic Games can now start.
Gabrielle, born in 1995 and pictured here in a fantastic pink biketard, started her career in gymnastics at the advice of her older sister Arielle, who considered she would make a good gymnast. She was right, so now her litter sister is representing the United States in one of the most important competitions. Gabby loves to read and to knit, enjoys Mexican and Italian food and prefers to watch The Vampire Diaries.
McKayla, pictured in a beautiful biketard during a competition, got involved in gymnastics thanks to her mother. She considered that her little one has too much energy and should make some sport. McKayle is a fan of The Hunger Games series of books, listens the music of Beyonce, Justin Bieber and Nicki Minah and never misses Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Alexandra is involved in gymnastics since she was two, so no wonder she is ready to compete in the Olympic Games. She enjoys to spend time with her friends and family and to shop. Aly listens R’n’B music and is a fan of the show Pretty Little Liars. She is not only beautiful and talented, she also has a beautiful heart: Aly is involved in the organization of Special Olympics.
Kyla Ross, photographed in a patriotic-print biketard, was very energetic since she was a little kid, so her mother had no choice but to put her in gymnastics. Kyla sees this sport as a continuous challenge which represents a constant motivation for her. Outside the gym, she is an usual girl who watches Modern Family and reads The Hunger Games.
Jordyn was born in July 1995 and is involved in gymnastics in present thanks to her parents, who noticed the perfect balance of their daughter. Like any teenager, Jo loves romantic books like The Last Song and doesn’t miss any episode of Grey’s Anatomy. She loves to eat hummus and to hang out with her friends.
The girls can’t wait to compete in this year’s Olympic Games as this was one of their goals since they started practicing gymnastics. There are just a few days until the beginning of the competitions and they are preparing for their trip in the capital of England. Hopefully, they will return home victorious in the month of August.
